Honored House
Edenton, the center of pre-revolutiort history
jn' the Albemarle, continues to gain historic no-'
variety as a result of the recent nomination of Bark-'
er House for inclusion on the National Register of
Historic. Plac s, the nation's official list of signifi
cant historic properties. : s .
' , The house is thought to have been built be
tween 1778 and 1787, by Thomas Barker, a lawyer
and planter, who waspolitically active before the
revolution.
Barker House was moved from its original site
to a spot of land extending into Albemarle Sound,
where it creates one of the most picturesque vistas
in North Carolina. Today, it serves as an orientation
point for tours of Historic Edenton. ' , . '.

America's Children
Family Weekly reports.
qualified experts agree
something is terribly wrong
with America's children, that
one in every two in homes with
incomes of $6,500 or more) are
suffering from some degree of
emotional impairment,
requiring mental health ser
vices! Of all shocking statistics
concerning the nation today
none is more damning. Crime
figures are scandalous,
marriages are failing in more,
than one of three attempts, drug
abuse is a national scandal, etc.
But the shocking reality that
one in two American children
needs mental health service is
the worst indictment of our
society.-' v v?
The cause is easy enough to
identify. Too many parents fail
to spend enough time with their
children, or make an effort to
rear them by what some call
oldJime standards. ,
Every expert agrees children
need their parents, especially
the ; mother, who today often
leaves them each dav with
someone else and joins the rat
race for the dollar. Thus both
parents are often caught up in
today's hectic pace of life, some
neglect their children 5 when
money is no problem.
The nation's sordid television
fare also places millions of
American children in a cold.
violent, impersonal world as
they grow up watching hours
and hours of commercial TV a
day. TV not produced for (heir
iH'iiefit but to sell goods,
Mixed up children often stem
from mixed parents in a
disturbed society. The task at
hand. then, is one for all adults.
a job which must be done if the
country is not to produce a new
generation of misfits, militants
and monsters.

CHRIST'S CONCERN FOR THE CITY
1 International Sunday School Lesson for February 6, 1072
LESSON TEXT: Luke 13:31-45; 19:28-48
In today's lesson we read of Christ's concern for the city of
Jerusalem, and His unremitting efforts to improve Its moral
climate. '
Jerusalem represented the highest attainment and hopes
of the people of Biblical times., .both politically and
religiously. Her potential was tremendous, but, un
fortunately her moral climate was such that her inhabitants,
steeped as they were In intrigue and the pursuit of material
wealth, failed completely to recognize the coming of the
Messiah, or the spiritual riches which He brought to them.
To give the people of Jerusalem protection and a sense of
security was Christ's aim, regardless of the fact that He wap
aware that It was in this city that the greatest sin of all time
would be committed against hlm...His death by crucifixion.
: But until this repudiation of His love brought disaster to
.Jerusalem,- Christ worked tirelessly to remove the
moneylenders and their ilk from the confines of the Temple,
and restore It to the people for the purposes for which It was
intended., the teaching of the scriptures and spiritual in
struction. The fact that the ecclesiastics and people of wealth
and power, seeing their position and power threatened by this
man who exerted such a compelling Influence over the
majority of those with whom He came in contact, opposed
Him fiercely, did not turn Christ from His appointed task. He
continued to champion the poor and the needy against ex
tortion and exploitation... as He would do today, were He to
walk the paths of the world, among us.
But just ac He left His disciples to carry on His work
after He gave up the Ghost so in every one of us who
profess the tenets of the Christian faith, He has his army to
fight against corruption and spiritual poverty, whenever
they rear their ugly heads.
: To this end, the Christian Church will need the ultimate in
effort from its members. For it is, in the unity of the Church
the Christian faith will And the strength.
Community effort will not be easily come by , for we live in
a fluid society. We also live in an age where mankind's in
creasing knowledge has provided many sophisticated
distractions for our present generation.. .all of which, alas,
tend to turn us away from regular church attendance, and
active participation in church programs.
To overcome these obstacles a concerted effort must te
made on both sides. Congregations must not be gruc"c 1 cf
the inroads on leisure time the demands of an a..ve,
vigorous church will inevitably make; the church, in tun,
' must turn outwards, not inwards, being concerned v. !.'i

stances won't be the same.
Perhaps John is a little more
aware than most of us of the
ills that beset this world
for he is a theological stu
dent. He is determined to
make things better. And he is
equipped with enthusiasm,
understanding, a keen mind
and a deep faith.
How about you and your
tomorrows? Certainly the
best way to begin doing your
part is to cover that short dis
tance to church next Sunday.
